4 days in Rome. I’m so sorry for the lack of posts up here but I’ve been travelling from one city to the other in the past weeks (which you can follow on Instagram). Let’s start with a couple of impressions from our beautiful weekend in Rome. My boyfriend had to travel to Rome for work, which was the perfect occasion to spend a long weekend there. In the end it was 4 days in Rome for me. Moreover, I was happy to see my aunt again, who’s been living in Rome for many years now.

While I’d travelled to Paris many times in the past three years I completely forgot how beautiful Rome was. I can’t believe that my last time is already two years ago. All my posts from there are up here.

I’ve visited Rome many times with my parents when I was younger. Still, there are so many new places to discover. Moreover, I love to stroll through the city with my camera in my hand, which is what I did on the first day. My boyfriend arrived late in the evening so I had a lot of spare time on my own.

Doesn’t the Tiber look a little bit like riverside by the Seine in Paris? For me it definitely did – especially for the amount of house boats. A walk along the river is always beautiful but I like the area next to the Isola Tiberina the most. Walking from Piazza del Popolo I headed towards the Prati neighborhood, where I’ve never been before. I discovered a cute square with this beautiful fountain in the middle.

Behind Parco della Villa Borghese, in the northern part of the city, you’ll find this cute quartiere Coppedè. You can have a walk through and discover a bunch of beautiful Roman villas.

Of course, food can’t be missing. There’s already a huge list of restaurant recommendations up here. In general, Rome got super expensive for eating in the city centre. Therefore, a lot of Roman people are heading out of the city for restaurants. There are a lot of Roman trattorie, where you pay around 12€ for a cacio e pepe in a really shabby place. For that money you can get a plate of pasta on a beautiful terrace right in the middle of Campo dei Fiori.

My aunt brought us to Scarpone, which is a really popular restaurant for Roman people. You’ll probably won’t find any tourists here. We had delicous carciofi alla Guida, paccheri all’Amatriciana and delicious gnocchi. Highly to recommend!

A stroll through Trastevere is always a must. There are a lot of cute shops and delicious gelaterie. I remember walking through this pretty neighborhood when everything was in full bloom two years ago.

A friend of mine recommended Il Rugantino, which has a lovely terrace outside. Even though, it was a very touristic place I’d eaten a delicious plate of spaghetti alle vongole. The prices are very reasonable and I paid 10€ in total (a liter of water cost 1€, which I’ve never seen before). Good thing is that they don’t charge any covers.

I couldn’t remember if I’d ever visited the Castel Sant’Angelo, which I highly recommend. The view from the top of the castle is so beautiful! I suggest to go there either really early to get beautiful morning light or enjoy a sunset on top on the panorama terrace.
